Seahawks Deja”Vu and Monday night Primetime

Published on April 19, 2011 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

The Seattle Seahawks will open their 2011 season just as they did last season, by playing the division-rival 49ers. But they also have prime-time games in back-to-back weeks at Qwest Field.

2011 Season Schedule

The Seahawks’ defense of their first division title under coach Pete Carroll will start much like their first season under him: With an opening-weekend matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.

This season, however, the Seahawks will play the 49ers at Candlestick Park. Last September, they opened the regular-season with a game against the 49ers at Qwest Field – and the Seahawks won 31-6.

The regular-season schedule was announced today by the NFL, but when the season will begin is being played out in the courtroom and across mediation tables as the league and its players try to reach a new Collection Bargaining Agreement.

The Seahawks also are scheduled to close the regular season against an NFC West opponent on the road – at the Arizona Cardinals on Jan. 1.

In between, the defending division champions will be featured in back-to-back prime-time games at Qwest: Thursday, Dec. 1, against the Philadelphia Eagles, with a 5:20 p.m. kickoff; and Monday, Dec. 12, against the St. Louis Rams, with a 5:30 p.m. kickoff.

The Seahawks had only one prime-time game last season, and they were flexed into a night game against the Rams at Qwest on the final Sunday of the regular season. The Seahawks won that game to win the division and advance to the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

The Seahawks also will play a third home game during that stretch – Nov. 27 against the Washington Redskins. The last time the Seahawks played three consecutive home games was in 2004, when they hosted the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys in as many weeks.

The schedule calls for the Seahawks to have back-to-back home games only one other time: Sept. 25 and Oct. 2, when the host the Cardinals and Atlanta Falcons. The Seahawks’ only back-to-back road games come in Weeks 1 and 2, when they followed their opener at San Francisco with a Sept. 18 game against the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

The Seahawks also play at the New York Giants on Oct. 9 and at the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 23. But their bye is sandwiched between those games on Oct. 16.

They also play the Cincinnati Bengals (Oct. 30), Baltimore Ravens (Nov. 13) and 49ers (Dec. 24) at Qwest Field. Their other road games take them to Dallas (Nov. 6), St. Louis (Nov. 20) and Chicago (Dec. 18).

So after playing their first two games and two of their final three on the road, the Seahawks will be at home seven times in 11 games from late September through mid-December.

The Seahawks played six of their 2011 opponents last season, as well – the 49ers, Cardinals, Rams, Bears, Falcons and Giants – and went 5-4 against them.
